I'm embarrassed. We just dug up a strip of lawn next to the south fence, threw in some poo + compost etc followed by seeds.

It is really productive, weeds come up so fast I have to tell visitors "that's actually a vege garden".
Veges grow well too.

We had lots of grassgrub at the start so I turned the ground over many times to let the birds get them. Slugs were picked off at nights with a torch, very easy. They are not around much this year, too dry perhaps.

Mine's just been neglected for two weeks, but wellingtons weather has kept it from drying out.
The kohl rabi got fat in those two weeks - huge. And the silverbeet is choking the cos lettuce behind it. Peas going well flowering and podding, but yet to fill out. Courgettes producing a small one every couple of days - not yet at full speed yet.
Parsley is attempting to crowd out the rocket, and winning. :rolleyes: Gonna have to hack it back. I likes me rocket.

Nice one. :thumbsup:

Cheers! Pea straw is the bizzo for keeping the weeds down, keeping the soil damp, and provides a comfy sunbed for the cat.
I'm also 'into' straight lines :paranoid:
